As instructed by the Government Brundall’s Play Parks/skate parks and sports courts are officially closed. All parents and children must not use them. See below for the avoidance of doubt for the playgrounds and other areas: 2. CLOSING NON-ESSENTIAL SHOPS AND PUBLIC SPACES Last week, the Government ordered certain businesses – including pubs, cinemas and theatres – to close. The Government is now extending this requirement to a further set of businesses and other venues, including: ● all non-essential retail stores – this will include clothing and electronics stores; hair, beauty and nail salons; and outdoor and indoor markets, excluding food markets. ● libraries, community centres, and youth centres. ● indoor and outdoor leisure facilities such as bowling alleys, arcades and soft play facilities. ● communal places within parks, such as playgrounds, sports courts and outdoor gyms. ● places of worship, except for funerals attended by immediate families. ● hotels, hostels, bed and breakfasts, campsites, caravan parks, and boarding houses for commercial/leisure use (excluding permanent residents and key workers). There will be penalties in the form of on the spot fines issued for anyone not complying with the law as from tomorrow.
These closures do not extend to Brundall Countryside Park, Cremer’s Meadow, Church Fen and the Cemetery plus spare cemetery fields which are accessible and open to walk through adhering to the social distancing recommended. The Allotments also remain open.
Be A Good Neighbour!
At this great time of strain, it is important we do our best to help each other and keep things as normal as we can. But, given the latest advice surrounding the prospect of self-isolation for everyone over the age of 70, as well as those with underlying health problems, or showing symptoms, we clearly cannot continue to operate as normal.
We are therefore working together across our community to coordinate service and support that volunteers can offer safely without risking the health of the people around them. This will take the form of telephone support, delivery of food, medicine and library books and any other support volunteers are able to provide. We will be guided by NHS England’s advice as the situation evolves and will endeavor to effectively communicate future messages.
The parish volunteers are being co-ordinated by representatives from the Yare Valley Churches, Brundall Memorial Hall, Brundall and Postwick Parish Councils and the Brundall and Blofield Good Neighbour Scheme, supported by Brundall Home Hardware.
However, it is important we don’t over-react too. There is a lot of really helpful information already on the NHS website. https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/
Our challenge now is to do the best we can to continue to provide support to those most in need in a way that’s most appropriate.
What you can do?
If you know your neighbours well enough, phone them or knock on their door to enquire if they are in need of assistance.
If they say they need some help and have no access to any nearby friends or relatives, then please put them in touch with us via the below email:
[email protected] or call 07494 408301
If you are unsure about a neighbour and suspect they might need some help why not encourage them to contact us? But whatever you do to help, stay safe and follow all the NHS advice.
